Watch this fabulous video of an inquisitive octopus as it comes out of the water to go for a 'walk'.

Although it's not unusual for octopus to come out of the water – they're great escape artists in the aquarium after all – footage of this sort of quality that actually shows them walking about is much less common.

The octopus in question appears to carry a crab, which it leaves at the feet of the person holding the camera.

Amazing video!
